The Ordinariate has now made its own financial arrangements and it’s no longer necessary to use the generous provision of the Catholic League. If you have already set up support via the Catholic League this can continue until you are informed otherwise; but please consider direct support of the Ordinariate.
Don’t forget that the Ordinariate groups are being generously accommodated by Catholic churches. Each of them needs support too, at least to help cover their costs in doing that. One way of doing that is to contribute to the offertory; do use a Gift Aid envelope or sign a declaration.
and send them both off to the Treasurer of the Eastbourne Group: Sheila Hichisson, 86 Channel View Road, Eastbourne BN22 7LL.
For one-off donations, simply replace the Standing Order form with a cheque made payable to The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. Write the name of the group on the back of the cheque.
Fill in a Gift Aid Declaration, if you are eligible and you haven’t already done that for the Ordinariate. Send it to the Treasurer of the Eastbourne Group: Sheila Hichisson, 86 Channel View Road, Eastbourne BN22 7LL. HM Revenue & Customs need this to be paper, there’s no internet equivalent.
Set up a standing order through your internet banking service, using sort code 40-04-09 and account 82035758. Use a payment reference of your name (up to a maximum of 18 characters).
Email us to let us know of your donation and its payment reference. Include as much information as possible about your donations.
|You can make one-off donations via your bank’s internet service too, or you can use PayPal from this page. You don’t have to have a PayPal account, but PayPal need some details in order to verify the card transaction, and we receive your address in order to identify the donation for Gift Aid purposes if that’s relevant. We don’t use it for any other purpose. If you use PayPal, they hold your donation on our behalf until we transfer it to our bank account.|
We’re able to accept card payments in person, again using PayPal as an intermediary, issuing receipts either on paper or electronically. If you can Gift Aid your donations, then please fill in and send us a Gift Aid Declaration.
It’s still possible to donate using cash at services. You can join our envelope scheme which makes it easy for you to budget, and if you are eligible and have filled in a Gift Aid Declaration, we can reclaim tax on your donation too. Or, simply place your donation in the basket. Even here, the Government allows us to access the Gift Aid scheme if denominations of notes and coins are no more than £20.
Do consider whether any existing clause supporting the Church of England should be revised.
The Ordinariate has published sample forms of words for bequests, which need to be included in the body of a will or a codicil in order to be acceptable.
You must consult your solicitor for advice, and you may wish to consult the Ordinariate’s financial officers if you are considering including a request for your gift to be used for a specific purpose. It may not be possible to accept all bequests if the specific request cannot be accommodated.
